Pretty sure it would cause a burst bladder in me and/or a severe bout of constipation. Mic September 7, 2020 at 2:53 am 3 years ago He just wants some pees and quiet.

Meran September 7, 2020 at 5:59 am 3 years ago “But me, as toilet-bot, am much better equipped…” Eek. Makes me cringe. (Lol) Look at it without the internal phrase… “But me am much better…” See? 😉 Frankie D.

Nor speak either. KQY September 7, 2020 at 6:56 am 3 years ago There’s always PottyBot. Chocolate Pudding, anyone? Keith September 7, 2020 at 10:59 am 3 years ago Intellectually I understand. Being the father who taught little boys about the pee pee tree so they would not worry about peeing their pants means…I don’t get the whole body fluid / privacy / aversion thing. Or I’m just a shameless weirdo. Pete Rogan September 7, 2020 at 4:20 pm 3 years ago Aaaaand I’m back to quoting the late Fred Allen, on American television: “I don’t hold with furniture that talks back.” nightgaunt492015 September 7, 2020 at 10:42 pm 3 years ago I don’t know what Tesfaye is going on about. Just relieve one’s self talking or not. Some people seem too modest to the point of hampering natural functions. Very human, unfortunately. It makes for a humorous moment in the story in the toilet. Reminds me of those males who equate cleaning their butt with homosexuality. Mentally ill that. Deep deprogramming is called for. Christopher Baldwin September 7, 2020 at 11:39 pm 3 years ago I see what you’re saying, @Nightgaunt492015. And I are that modesty can be a factor, but that it can have a lot to do with the body shame one is taught or simply observes from their parents, or how cruel one sees (or is the victim of) one’s peers. Nomi September 8, 2020 at 11:45 am 3 years ago 1. I know people who are so modest they can’t use a public toilet unless they are the only person in the lavatory, and I know other people who … I can’t call it modest, I don’t know what it is, but basically they can’t use a toilet that is not in their own home or perhaps in homes of family members. So essentially they can’t travel, ever. So Tesfay’s aversion to talking facilities (or any talk at the toilet) is not incomprehensible. 2. @nightgaunt492015, are there really “males who equate cleaning their butt with homosexuality”? I have learned something today, and I wish I hadn’t. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
